Rove Tactics Bite Back

Rove, doing his character-assassination thing, said this about Virginia Governor (and potential Obama veep) Tim Kaine just over two weeks ago:
"With all due respect again to Governor Kaine, he's been a governor for three years. He's been able but undistinguished. I don't think people could really name a big, important thing that he's done ... [Kaine] was mayor of the 105th largest city in America. And again, with all due respect to Richmond, Virginia, it's smaller than Chula Vista, California; Aurora, Colorado; Mesa, or Gilbert, Arizona; North Las Vegas, or Henderson, Nevada. It's not a big town."
Wasilla is roughly the size of Florence, Oregon.

Having missed Pat Buchanan's gushing over Obama's speech, the only talking heads I caught seemed a bit underwhelmed by the whole event. But, 24 hours later, I couldn't believe how loudly the praises of Sarah Palin were being yelled on the cable news networks. I think if McCain gets through the campaign season without a completely inappropriate outburst, the media's going to prop up every damn thing he does.
